The Superintendent’s Parent Advisory Committee (SPAC) is comprised of parent representatives from each school, as well as representatives from community groups. The SPAC meets with the Superintendent and other district staff on a monthly basis during the school year. Members work together to:
- Serve as an advisory, not a decision-making body that makes recommendations, encourages brainstorming and provides opportunities for parents involvement.
- Facilitate communication between and among parents and parent organizations from different schools as a forum for sharing innovations and best practices.
- Provide the Superintendent with feedback and insight from parents’ perspectives on school processes, policies and initiatives to ensure the needs of parents and families are included as decisions are made in the district.
- Bring to the Superintendent’s attention existing and emerging issues expressed by parents at the schools they represent.
- Identify common needs and goals among the parents of students enrolled in Farmington Municipal Schools and facilitate strategies to increase efficiency and effectiveness of their respective school’s parent organizations.
